Khan lució como un general ante Alexander

Yahoo Deportes

Amir Khan se unió a los aspirantes a un combate estelar usando su velocidad y la precisión de su mano derecha para ganar el sábado por decisión unánime en pelea a 12 asaltos de categoría welter al excampeón Devon Alexander.

El boxeador británico no derribó a Alexander y sus golpes no pusieron en malas condiciones a Alexander, pero Khan dominó ampliamente por 119-109, 118-110 y 120-108 para aspirar a una pelea con Floyd Mayweather Jr el próximo año. La velocidad de Khan fue demasiado para su oponente desde el inicio del combate y mantuvo a distancia al zurdo Alexander, a quien también superó en los intercambios de golpes.
